Vejby, Denmark

Travel to Vejby

Vejby is a parish and small town in Gribskov Municipality, near Zealand's Kattegat coast, some 50 km north of Copenhagen, Denmark. The town of Vejby is located three kilometres east of Tisvilde and three kilometres south of Rågeleje, both popular coastal resorts, and seven kilometres north of Helsinge. Vejby Station is located on the Tisvilde branch of the Gribskoc Railway and is served by Lokaltog. The town's most notable landmark is its 12th-century church. Vejby Strand (Vejby Beach) is a summer house area.

Vejby is first mentioned in King Valdemar's Census Book from the beginning of the 13th century. The name means "town by a road". Most of the parish, which had some of the best soil in North Zealand, belonged to Esrum Abbey, although Æbelholt Abbey owned some property in the village of Ørby. The village was one of the most prosperous in Holbro Herred as witnessed by tax lists from the 16th century. The prosperity of the village in early times is also indicated by the large size of its church which is second only to Søborg Church in size among the area's churches, although donations from pilgrims visiting St Helen's spring and grace at Tsivilde have also contributed to this.
